Changes in History: Political and Gaming
John Fea at the Way of Improvement blogs about an op-ed claiming that political historians are a dwindling breed. Supposedly the rise of social and cultural history and the study of minorities and women has risen, while politics has declined. I've no opinion about that, but I was gob-smacked today to learn a relative, just beginning university at a good school, is taking the "history of gaming" in his first term.
